Model Ship Competition – Use Wool

Hi Folks

I received the following letter regarding a competition, you may be interested…..

Dear Sir or Madame,

My name is Kerstin. I work for Maxus, which is a media agency based in Sydney.

Today, Spirit of Tasmania, which is one of our clients, opened a model making competition today:

I was wondering if this contest might be of interest for you as it is very open in regard of what kind of submission can be made, I am sure there could be some great wool and fibre work and models on that!

The competition will be open for entries until 27 January 2014.

Anyway I’m curious to know what you think of it, maybe this is something to share with knitting, spinning, craft lovers?

How about it everyone, it would be a fun competition to enter, plus there is a variety of age groups for the younger Felters and wool crafts people.
